Eggs Make Big Impression At Iowa State Fair

The results are in, and Iowa egg farmers are celebrating as eggs-on-a-stick set a new record at the 2016 Iowa State Fair. This year topped last year’s record by nearly 12,000 eggs with 158,688 eggs handed out to fairgoers. The popularity continues to grow, and members of the Iowa Egg Council say it is not surprising as the snack boasts a mere 70 calories but provides six grams of protein…oh, and it is FREE. Egg-on-a-stick will be back at next year’s fair in the Agriculture Building.
